Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

What is Cyclocross

I searched the forum and came up with only 500 plus posts containing the word cyclocross. Hah! So, what is it? I have been looking at the bikes and it appears to me all they are, is basically a road bike with knobby tires! That's gotta be a harsh ride!

Someone explain! I would rather get a cyclocross than a road bike; they seem to be a bit more versatile.

Basically, Cyclocross is on-road and off-road cycling with a specially modified road bike. Although the terrain is not (supposedly) as arduous as mountain biking, there are times when the rider must dismount and carry his/her bike over an obstacle, i.e., a fallen log, raging stream, etc. Check out USA Cycling
